Diabetes Art Day 2010

As many of you know, the fabulous Lee Ann Thill of The Butter Compartment has deemed today, September 1st, Diabetes Art Day!  Here is my contribution, which honestly, I did not create exclusively for Diabetes Art Day.  I made this on World Diabetes Day last year in the company of Miss Lee Ann herself at the WDD Philadelphia event held at Temple University's School of Podiatric Medicine.  However, I have not looked at it since then.  Looking at it now, with new eyes, I realize I have some decent drawing skills!  It's called "Sin City", and it's a portrait of delicious, "forbidden" carby snacks!

I am particularly proud of the cupcake specifically.  That cherry looks downright edible.  I am aware that the proportions of the whole drawing may not be proper, but that's not the point.

Here's another view of the art itself.  Materials used are white and blue construction paper (or perhaps it's white drawing paper?  It seemed to be nice stuff!) and Crayola markers.  Happy Diabetes Art Day, everyone!  I can't wait to see what you came up with!

  8. You do indeed have some drawing skills, my dearest Dorkabetic! i loved it last WDD, and I love it today! It's cool to pull out some previously completed art and see it with new eyes, as you described it. Thanks for breaking it out and having a look at it again in honor of Diabetes Art Day! Happy to have my dorky Philly-phile friend jumping into the Diabetes Art Day action, Sin-City style no less :)
